My Little Baby Korean Drama Review

My Little Baby Korean Drama - Oh Ji Ho

My Little Baby tells the story of a tough detective (Oh Ji Ho) that specializes in violent crimes who suddenly finds himself having to care for a baby after his sister and brother-in-law pass away.

Oh Ji Ho plays Cha Jung Han. He ends up unexpectedly taking care of his niece Eun Ae which proves to be more than a little bit challenging. As he humorously struggles to become a good parent, he gets involved in a mom group that tends to be more of a curse than a blessing.

Then we have Lee Soo Kyung as Han Ye Seul. She lives in the same apartment building as Jung Han. Her son is a bit difficult to handle which causes the other moms to ostracize her. She’s a bit quirky and super sweet as well as eager to help Jung Han with his parenting challenges.

I’m looking for lighter fare these days to add a little much needed joy and laughter to my life. That’s what sent me deep into my old watch list and finally coming up with My Little Baby.

It’s a classic situational style comedy of a man in over his head trying to care for a baby. It’s definitely a plot line that has been used many, many times, but it’s one I tend to like. And My Little Baby was a mostly enjoyable watch.

The actual plot is pretty basic and slow moving since the comedy is what takes the front seat. Something potential viewers should be aware of is what most of the comedy and even the story revolves around.

Of course, there is plenty of focus on the challenges that Jung Han faces caring for the baby. Lots of fun to be had there. The other big part is on the mom group that he is involved in. The bulk of the drama features these meddling ahjummas causing trouble for Jung Han. So if you get easily annoyed with meddling characters, especially ones that have a big presence in most of the drama, this one might not be for you.

Since this was more situational, I got a kick out of these ladies and all of the trouble they caused. The actresses were all wonderful and made for some very lively characters that I quite enjoyed.

From a story stand point, we see Jung Han settle into parenting, though with plenty of problems arising in comedic fashion. We eventually see a bit of romance develop between him and Ye Seul too which added a nice layer to the overall story. We also have some growth from the ahjummas, albeit slow. So there is that dash of heart.

As someone who tends to like a strong plot, My Little Baby is not strong in that department. But comedies are one place I’m more forgiving in that area. There’s nothing revolutionary about My Little Baby, but it was a very easy watch that was fun with plenty to laugh at. It fit what I was looking for right now, and I enjoyed it.

My Rating: 7/10

    I might have been interested in this but if one of your caveats is meddling ahjummas then I’m out. I just slogged through “can we get married?” and that was one of the things that almost made me drop it halfway through!! I’m in the middle of a 3 dramas right now and can’t seem to find a footing in any but will keep at it 🙂

      Haha, yep, the meddling ahjummas are an integral part of this drama. It seems like most people either enjoyed it or disliked it because of them. They were pretty funny for me, but it’s easy to see how their trouble-making would be really annoying for many hehe 🙂

    Sounds like easy comfort drama food which fit the bill! 😀 I think that the current situation is influencing my drama choices too, in that I find it harder to start a new show, and would sooner start something less solid but easier to digest, than something solid but more difficult &/or heavy.

      Easy it was! 🙂 Yep, I understand. My drama choices are very altered from my normal fare right now. I too have went for some things that are decent but not great purely because that were light and easy. I’m seriously craving my angsty stuff, but I think it will have to stay on hold for at least a little longer! 🙂
